Hi, I just joined after learning some details regarding Eucalyptus gunnii, the cider gum.
I'm interested in growing Eucalyptus here in Texas and been researching not only trees for wind breaks and ornamentals, but uses for the wood and the flowers being a source for honey. When I read up on the cider gum, not only should it do well with the climate I have here, I also learned that the sap can be used to make a cider and a sweet syrup similar to maple syrup.
After a quick search of google Australia, I found the web site for Australian Bushfoods magazine
which had a link to this forum, so that's how I found my way here all the way from Texas. (BTW, the climate here is just like that of Tasmania and parts of Victoria.)
Now being interested in the cider gum, I'm curious if any companies produce cider gum syrup and / or cider which I could purchase to try.
I would also like to know what is the process to try my hand at home made gum cider and gum syrup once I get the trees established.
